EXCLUSIVE: Trailer premiere for DUST’s new sci-fi short ‘Regulation’

Sci-fi entertainment brand DUST is premiering the exclusive trailer for its latest sci-fi short Regulation. The film follows a young social worker who administers behavior-modifying ‘patches’ that guarantee happiness for those who wear it. Every child struggles with coming-of-age emotions: fear, anxiety, social stress. If you had a magic patch you could give your kid to make all of those fears go away, would you use it? By the trailer alone, writer and director Ryan Patch brings sci-fi fans a story worthy of the creepiest Black Mirror episodes.

In the near future, a young social worker (Sunita Mani, “Glow”) travels to a small community to administer behavior-modifying “patches” that guarantee happiness for the wearers. She must decide what to do when a precocious girl (Audrey Bennett, “Frozen on Broadway”) refuses to accept the patch.
